Being a Patriot means spending time with hundreds of your closest friends

Student Life

It’s all here for the taking and learning. Be a mentor, actor, debater, house builder, philosopher, singer or intramural sport champion – to start. New clubs develop every year according to someone’s inspiration and interest. Maybe you’ll have the next big idea for a new club that becomes a campus favorite.

UC has all the amenities in its dorms

Residence Life

Share a pizza. Eat popcorn. Play cards. Watch a movie. Life on campus is just that – life. It’s your schedule. As a freshman, you can bring your car to UC to travel the surrounding area. But you’ll probably want to hang close by, soaking in all the fun planned weekly by our Campus Activities Board.

UC has more than 40 clubs and organizations

Clubs & Organizations

This is your chance to try something new. It doesn’t matter what you did in high school – this is a new beginning. Meet people with your same interests. Get out of your comfort zone and take a chance in a new group, whether your personality is high-energy or low-key. You’ll feel welcome and learn something about yourself. With more than 40 clubs and organizations, there's something for everyone!

Dining Options

Between studying and sleeping, dining options are a top priority for an incoming college student. UC students have plenty to choose from when hunger strikes: Chick-fil-A and Tossed over in the Campus Center, the TJ Roberts Dining Hall for a buffet of homestyle foods, and even Red, White & Brew - our campus Starbucks location. Explore the hours, menus and more that will fuel your education and experience at UC.

Original or grilled, we have your Chick-Fil-A cravings covered
CAB keeps our students busy year round

Campus Activity Board (CAB)

Students involved with CAB help plan activities like concerts, comedians, live entertainment, ice cream socials, paint festivals and water slides for their fellow students. CAB members always have an endless amount of school spirit. If you love an exciting social life, making other people happy or just dancing to your own music, then CAB is for you.

Mountain Outreach

Mountain Outreach is a nationally-recognized service program that completes construction projects and offers food and necessities to people in need across Appalachia. Students and faculty have built 150 houses through Mountain Outreach since our students founded the organization in 1982. So grab a hammer and tape measure, and help get the job done. You’ll be a master carpenter in no time.
